Top place, top price

Upon entering the rooms at Rainbow House you’re greeted by clean, crisp white sheets on the beds which is a pleasing anomaly for Muang Ngoi.
Located in a large two-storey concrete and wooden building next to the dock, the rooms here don’t have river views and aren’t bungalows. There aren’t even any hammocks. One might wonder what the point of staying at such a place is when visiting a town like Muang Ngoi and as a result you’d expect the place to be deserted, but it isn’t. It is often full with people that have taken the first clean guesthouse when walking up from the dock. In any case, the rooms are nicer than many of the bungalows in town, the cold water bathrooms also come with Western toilet and the prices are keen. Although it’s a top place at a top price, we’d suggest checking out some bungalows first as that’s what Muang Ngoi is all about.
